Schools (Mental Health Professionals) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 1 Mar 2024)

Baroness Barran: My Lords, I also offer my congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler of Enfield, on securing a Second Reading for her Bill. I thank all those noble Lords who shared their personal experiences of how the mental health issues of their children and wider families have had an impact on them. I join noble Lords in recognising the extraordinary job that our schools do in supporting pupils...

Backbench Business: Eating Disorders Awareness Week — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (29 Feb 2024)

Andrew Stephenson: We are working very closely with NHS England and partners to ensure that that data is captured. We are also working with the charities involved in this sector and with others. I know that the Minister with responsibility for mental health, my hon. Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield), has been doing a lot of work on this and has met with various stakeholders. I perhaps should have...

Backbench Business: Colleges Week — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (29 Feb 2024)

Damian Hinds: ...important subject. He rightly mentioned that he and I have talked about these topics many times over—I think it is fair to say—many years. I know he has a fervent passion for and deep knowledge of the subject, and I thank him for what he does with the all-party parliamentary group on further education and lifelong learning. I join him in thanking and congratulating the Association of...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Jess Phillips: I rise, as I do at this time of the year, to remember the women killed by men in the last year. This is the ninth year that I have read out the names of women murdered by men. I did it originally in partnership with Karen Ingala Smith, because we were desperate to highlight the patterns of these killings; the epidemic of men’s violence against women and girls has not abated. I pay credit to...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: England Rare Diseases Action Plan 2024 (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Markham: My Hon. Friend Minister of State (Minister for Health and Secondary Care) (Andrew Stephenson) has made the the following Written Statement: The government has published England’s third Rare Diseases Action Plan on GOV.UK today, on international Rare Disease Day. Rare diseases are those affecting less than 1 in 2000 in the population. Although rare diseases are individually rare, they are...

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Feb 2024)

Clare Haughey: I refer members to my entry in the register of members’ interests, which shows that I hold a bank staff nurse contract with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. I thank the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee clerks for their support during the committee’s inquiry and preparation of our stage 1 report. The committee began its stage 1 scrutiny of the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill in...

Media Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (28 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of Leeds: ...Birt. I agree with every word he said. I strongly welcome the Bill. It is timely and necessary. The regulatory framework that governs public service media, not just broadcasting, is in urgent need of updating, given the accelerating changes in technology, media consumption and the wider media ecosystem in the 20 years since the Communications Act 2003. I commend the excellent Library...

Funding for Youth Services — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (28 Feb 2024)

Stuart Andrew: ...Twigg. I thank the hon. Member for Luton South (Rachel Hopkins) for securing this important debate, and all other Members for their extremely passionate contributions. I recognise the importance of youth services. As the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) said, more than 85% of a young person’s waking hours are spent outside school, and it is during that time that...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Finance (Scotland) Order 2024 [Draft] (28 Feb 2024)

Willie Rennie: Not just now—I am sorry. Do councillors in Glasgow City Council not care about education? Of course they care. It is because they have no money and are right up against it that they have had to make that decision. The Minister for Community Wealth and Public Finance and all other ministers carry on as if councillors are either stupid or do not care. Ministers need to change that attitude,...

Northern Ireland - Motion for an Humble Address: Amendment to the Motion (27 Feb 2024)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, like other noble Lords I particularly welcome the affirmation in the humble Address of the “foundational importance” of the provisions of Article VI, given that we are all aware that these provisions have been partly suspended in Northern Ireland because of the actions of this House and the other place in sanctioning Section 7A of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. If we...

Tackling Obesity — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (27 Feb 2024)

Preet Kaur Gill: ...today. As many colleagues have rightly highlighted, the obesity epidemic is a genuine crisis. It will be the next big public health issue that we will all be talking about in a few years. Some 60% of us are now overweight. One in four children in England are now obese by the time they leave primary school. That means that those children are five times more likely to go on to develop...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flooding in South Down: Economic Recovery (27 Feb 2024)

Diane Forsythe: Thank you very much. The long term is very important. I welcome the Economy Minister's announcement that the remaining £10 million from the flood recovery scheme is being made available, and I hope that that aids the longer-term recovery. However, as I mentioned, it is disappointing that that money may be too late to save many businesses. It is disappointing that, despite united and repeated...

Child Maintenance Service — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (27 Feb 2024)

Therese Coffey: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Sir Charles. I congratulate the Chairman of the Work and Pensions Committee, the right hon. Member for East Ham (Sir Stephen Timms), on securing this important debate. I recognise the importance of the Child Maintenance Service in trying to help children in low-income households. I give credit to Arlene Sugden, the former director of the CMS: she did...

Social Media Access in Prisons (26 Feb 2024)

Edward Argar: ...will bear with me for a moment, because I will turn to that specific point. However, I want to begin by highlighting the close interest that my hon. Friend has taken in this horrific case on behalf of his constituent. As we all know, he is unfailingly courteous, diligent and passionate as a constituency Member, when acting and speaking on behalf of his constituents, but I think he would...

Northern Ireland (26 Feb 2024)

Ian Paisley Jnr: The hon. Member for North Down (Stephen Farry) says that a glorified press release is in front of us tonight. The hon. Member for Foyle (Colum Eastwood), who is no longer in his place, said that a love letter to the Democratic Unionist party has been penned. They say that is all it is, yet they still protest. They protest if Unionists get as much as a nod and a wink. They still object to it....

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 135 (26 Feb 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I tabled Amendment 135 some weeks ago, after there seemed to be some difference in timing for the compensation scheme for those sub-postmasters who were accused of stealing, prosecuted and convicted, lost their jobs and their homes, were made bankrupt, lost future employment and, worse, lost their relationships; some were so distressed that they took their own lives. This House has...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Special Educational Needs and Disability: Investment and Transformation (26 Feb 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Madam Principal Deputy Speaker, and I hope that I have got your title right this time. The mission statement of the Minister's Department states that all pupils should be "happy, learning and succeeding." That applies equally to all young people, including those who have special educational needs. For those young children to be "happy, learning and succeeding", they require the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Strategic Framework to End Violence against Women and Girls: Implementation (26 Feb 2024)

Cheryl Brownlee: I support the motion and the amendment. I am pleased to see that we have got straight down to business since the return of the institutions and that we are dealing with the real issues that affect people across Northern Ireland every day. Violence against women and girls is a society-wide problem and requires a collaborative, whole-of-society approach. From the outset, it is important to...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: UK Integrated Security Fund FY 24/25 (26 Feb 2024)

Alex Burghart: The Minister of State, Baroness Neville-Rolfe DBE CMG, has today made the following statement: "I wish to update the House on the launch of the UK Integrated Security Fund (ISF) announced in the Integrated Review Refresh (IRR) by the Prime Minister on 12 March 2023. The Integrated Security Fund (ISF) will succeed the existing Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) in April 2024. The ISF...

NHS Property Services (23 Feb 2024)

Richard Foord: ...aim during this Adjournment debate is to get a plain answer to one simple question: to whom does NHS Property Services answer? That is a crucial question, because the organisation is in possession of an estate of more than 2,700 properties with a value of more than £3 billion. The company is responsible for roughly 10% of all NHS facilities, yet there is a need for clarity on how it is...
